I climbed the Ancient Art corkscrew with Jay, then the next day he took a buddy of mine and me and we did the Morning Glory canyoneering. Absolutely fabulous time! I am a relatively inexperienced climber, and Jay provided the guidance that allowed me to be successful climbing Ancient Arts. This was a much tougher climb than anything I had... More

We chose Moab Desert Adventures because our neighbors had just come back from a rappel tour with them and had a blast ... and so did we. This was our first time rappelling - felt totally safe doing it. We enjoyed Marie's commentary about the area and vegetation (even had us nibble on some pepper grass), during our hike in... More

Marie and Nate took us to the top of Ancient Art at Fisher Towers, a classic world famous rock climb. They were top notch. They were professional, well prepared, very skilled and experienced climbers. Everyone's safety was a priority, but they also made sure we all had a great time (ok, how could we not on Ancient Art?). I highly... More

Nate and Marie were awesome! Their knowledge about the area and their expertise made our trip to Moab far more authentic! I would recommend MDA to anyone looking for something to experience outside of the busy park scenes. Thanks guys!!

I picked Nate because I felt that he had the experience to guide my family of four safely and with the most fun. I loved that he didn't charge us extra to have a private trip either I didn't want to rock climb or canyoneer with anyone other than my family and it was an awesome experience. First of all... More

We had a group of 5 ranging in age from 12-76. Marie was outstanding!! Her knowledge and patience made our adventure incredible. She lead us through each reppell and 3 miles of hiking with ease. We can't wait to go back for more!!

We had a wonderful day of hiking and rappelling with Matt and Jay. They were easy-going, fun and friendly, and very knowledgable. We felt safe with them and enjoyed all that they showed us.

This was the second year that we have booked a trip with Nate. We had such a great time last year that we brought back 3 other families! We had kids as young as 8 years old rappelling down 100 ft cliffs!! Definitely a life defining adventure for our family! My young daughters got to experience a "girl guide". Marie... More

My son and I booked three separate climbing experiences with Nate, the owner, completely sight-unseen based on their internet reputation. We showed up the first morning to do some canyoneering and were greeted by three very experienced climbers and guides. Nate had assigned us to be with Jay Anderson for all three of our excursions, and, unbeknownst to us, literally... More

After discussing with Nate our level of experience and hopes to summit one of Moab's desert towers, he suggested that the Kor-Ingalls route on Castleton Tower would be a worthy challenge. The day turned out to be perfect with clear blue skies. Nate was an outstanding guide that provided both solid technical climbing skills and rope knowledge (all with a... More
